I am New

 
 
 
Welcome to Bethlehem United Methodist Church in Dallastown, Pa. We are a congregation of Christians who believe in the power of the love of God to bring new life to all people who honestly seek it.
 
We are diverse in our membership, yet united with Christ in our commitment. We believe in the teaching that the Church is an essential part of God's plan.
 
Rather than seeking conformity, our Christian task is to use our unique gifts to meet the needs of people.
 
If you have come as a stranger.... We pray that you will feel like a friend when you leave!
 
Come and experience Bethlehem Church for yourself. We hope that you will visit and enjoy your time with us sometime soon!
